I think someone has been reading Volume 2 of The Chronicles...

Quote:
"Well, would it be possible, do you think, to lay me hands on some malt loaf and a pint of the black stuff?"

"Don't be silly," mumbles FatBloke, without waking up. "You can't drink a pint of marmite."

"You see if Oi can't," says the creature.


... only they've got it the wrong way round.

Guinness Marmite, anyone?

Single varietal yeast, innit?

This is not just marmite, this is marmite harvested by hand from the fermenting tuns alongside the River Liffey...

You wait and see. It'll be London Pride Marmite for the Olympics next.

Aaah but is it any good for keeping the Scottish Midge at bay? I'll bet the Irish ones are different. :-k

I think the only thing that keeps those buggers at bay is a sacrificial victim. A Southerner or someone allergic to midge bites seems to be the best; an allergic Southerner will draw them like flies to, er...

...you get the idea :)

Yeah, the wife's from S London. :wink:
Pipe baccy used to work, thin twist at any rate, but I've stopped smoking :cry: & I did hear that Marmite was effective. :?

Nothing is effective.

It's all a ruse to sell anti-midge products and torture Southerners :twisted: .
